Morath’s Minions Take Home the 2016 BASH Cup

September 9, 2016 Leave a comment

After one of the bloodiest finals we’ve seen yet in the League the Morath’s Minions have come out victorious on the pitch and proved their worth to Nuffle as the 2016 Champions of the BASH league. If you missed it you can catch the archived video of the final on youtube in all it’s technical difficulty plagued glory.

Congratulations Morath’s Minion and their coach Joshua Garton, you’ve earned it.

And Now it’s Time to Say Goodbye

Usually after one of these posts is the part where I get everyone pumped up for the next season and remind you when we’ll be mustering again for the next season. However this time it is with a heavy heart that I announce that 2016 will be the last year for BASH. Since Blood Bowl released in 2009 I’ve had the privilege of being your commissioner. Since that time we went through three different league management tools and three different editions of the game, we’ve had a chance to see some of the best players in the country come onto the pitch and prove their mettle and I’ve enjoyed every season working with all of you. But all good things come to an end, and I think now is good time to bring the league to a close.

Thank you to all the coaches who have played through the years. I hope you all keep playing and that I see you out on the pitch.

The Road to the 2016 BASH Cup

BASH Spring 2011 TrophyAfter 14 long match days we have reached the end of our regular season. Everyone has fought long and hard but it is now time for our bottom four to call it a year while the top four goto the playoffs. Before we do lets bid a farewell to Mike R. and the Castrati, who with 26 points placed 3rd, but have to drop out as Mike is heading off to Japan. The #5 team the South Side Sirens take their place. The four teams selected will now battle it out live on air and all that is left to do now is to schedule them air times and get their matches played and broadcast live on Twitch.tv. Stay tuned to this space to see when that will be and when you can see each of these teams battle it out for their chance at the 2016 BASH Cup. If you are one of the teams in the playoffs I will be contacting you via email and phone to schedule a broadcast time. Please be ready to devote 3 hours to the broadcast and be someplace you can use voice communications without too much background noise.

Mustering for 2016 Season has Ended

April 3, 2016 Leave a comment

Logo_Neutre_01Mustering for the 2016 season has come to an end. We currently have 9 coaches signed up for this season. Please check your email for an update regarding tasks that need to be completed this week so we can kick off on April 11th. If you would like to join in on this season we have one spot available but you must submit your registration before April 9th.

Mustering for 2016 Season Begins Now

March 10, 2016 Leave a comment

Logo_Neutre_07In what seems like the blink of an eye another year has gone by. Since the last time BASH ran we’ve seen the end of summer has come to an end, fall and winter have flown by and we are headed face first into spring’s cleats, and that means it’s time for BASH to return. If you are a previous coach from the league you should have received an email reminding you to muster. If you have not gotten your email yet then please email commissioner@bashdl.com to sign up or bow out of the current season. This season of BASH will still be in Chaos Edition as Blood Bowl 2 still lacks in regards to team selection.

If you are a new coach you may sign up here. If you are a current coach and you would like to invite an out of region coach to the league you may do that as well though I ask you try to keep your invites to small. (No chain inviting the entire Orca Cola league guys. ;p )

Good luck to everyone on the pitch this season.

The Warpstone Womprats Claim the 2015 BASH Cup!

July 28, 2015 Leave a comment

The fans have filed out of the stands and the lava spigots have been turned off as we finally have our new 2015 Champions. The Warpstone Womprats lead by Craig have claimed victory over xxYYxx in the final match of the BASH Cup. For those of you who missed it you can see every moment of the action below

What to Expect in 2016

With that final match the 2015 season of BASH comes to a close. We’ll be back in March/April for the 2016 season of the league. If you want to be part of the next season send in your signup form to commissioner@bashdl.com. In March all new signups and previous coaches will be contacted via email to muster for the next season of the league. If you are a current coach and you want to get your friends into BASH l I find that Feburary is a good time to contact them so the league starts when it’s fresh on their mind.

With the new year comes some changes to Blood Bowl. Namely Cyanide will be releasing Blood Bowl II. As it is currently, BASH will not be transitioning to Blood Bowl II, primarily due to the lack of races upon release. It is unknown at this time if the Blood Bowl Platform will stop supporting Blood Bowl Chaos Edition when Blood Bowl II releases. Options are being explored if that occurs, including abandoning the Cyanide client entirely. Information will be released when that happens, if it happens.

Thank you for playing everyone and I look forward to seeing you again on the pitch in 2016

– Don, BASH Digital League Commissioner
